It turned out that when I was testing the loom for continuity, my multimeter probes which are very fine were still bigger than the poles in the abs sensor plug. So I had stretched the female socket ports.

Stripping down the socket as much as I could, and using some fine surgical forceps, I managed to close up the connections, which gave a good contact when plugging the abs plug back in.

Abs fault cleared and all good.
So what was the original fault? Bad contact in the electrical connector?

I’m hindsight, and I’ve learned a lesson here, I should have back probed.

Initially I hesitated with that as the back of the plug in question had a small plastic clip and a fine rubbery seal which I didn’t want to disturb. I ended up having to strip all that down anyway to fix the issue.

We live and learn.

Thanks for the help everyone 👍🏻
